I found a couple of facts interesting about Littell's prize win. He wins a total of ten euros ($12 US) and he also used the pseudonym Jean Petit for his entry. And just in case he still irritates you because he is the son of a famous author and just won a prestigious prize, he has worked for years for humanitarian aid groups in Bosnia, Afghanistan, Chechnya and other trouble spots. His book actually sounds really interesting: "a provocative retelling of historic events with the narrator's own tale of incest, homosexuality and murder." The 900 page length is a bit off-putting though.

Er... yes. Thank you, karenb. It's too late to mail the ballot. Take it to a library or other drop slot, instead.
